hi, i am new here. i can't stimulate my circuit? why my circuit has been paused becaused of this error? i need your help to help me with this error (PSPICE). thank you


this the error :

10.00 GA indicates giga-Amps, correct? That's a very large value. Try putting resistors in series with capacitors. Your schematic has the power supply feeding a capacitor directly. The simulator cannot calculate a sensible RC time constant.

Remove U4 Switch.You don't need it.
That switch disturbs the simulation..not necessary..

Hi,

The answer is already given in post#2.
A closing "ideal" switch with two "ideal" capacitors gives "infinite" current at zero charging time.

--> Neither "infinite current" nor "zero time" can be simulated correctly.

*********
So far so good.
As soon as one does a realistic simulation, with wire resistance, with wire impedance, with ESR at the capacitors, with contact resistance....the above simulation will work, too.

Now think the other way round: How much sense makes an "unrealistic ideal" simulation at all?
It does not show how the circuit really works.

If you want to do a really realistic simulation you need to include additional parameters of each part and you need to add the PCB layout effects.

But I don't want to say that simulation is useless. But you (the designer) needs to know the limits. What does the simulation show ... and what does the simulation not show. You need to interprete the simulation results
